Shea Butter and National Healthy Skin Month-Part 4
So this is the final installment in our National Healthy Skin Month series. The two remaining topics we will touch on today involve using Shea Butter to help with nail care and rosacea.
One of the natural components in Organic Unrefined Shea Butter is latex. This substance forms a protective film and barrier over the skin making it a very effective nail and cuticle treamtment. Just a side note about your cuticles, the cuticle is the skin that grows from the finger onto the base of the nail (nail root). It is recommended that the cuticle not be pushed back NOR removed because leaving the cuticle intact helps to prevent infection.
Another natural component, cinnamic acid, appears to have antibacterial, antifungal, and parasite fighting abilities. This makes Organic Unrefined Shea Butter a wonderful aid to assist with nail and cuticle care of the feet as well.
First, as mentioned in yesterday's post, if you have this condition you must understand that Shea Butter is NOT A DRUG and therefore you should contact a licensed practitioner before using anything to help with this condition. Many people find that a whole-body approach, i.e diet, exercise, meditation, visualization are necessary to treat this condition.
Unrefined Organic Shea Butter has helped the conditions of those with rosacea due to its high healing fraction as well as its extraordinarily high moisturizing fraction. The fact that it contains an abundant of all-natural anti-inflammatory agents also makes it helpful for rosacea.
